Community Recycling Centre

Community Recycling Centres (CRCs) are permanent drop-off centres for common household problem wastes that can’t be collected via recycling collection services. NSW householders can drop off problem wastes at these centres year round, free of charge. The Community Recycling Centre service is currently only available at the Glen Innes Waste Facility. 

Items that can be disposed of for free at the CRC include:

  • Paints
  • Gas Bottles
  • Batteries
  • Motor Oils
  • Smoke Detectors
  • Fluorescent tubes and globes

Many of these materials can be reused and recycled if processed correctly. Recycling helps our environment because it saves water, energy and natural resources. Only household quantities accepted. Dangerous goods will not be accepted.

Further Information regarding Community Recycling Centres is available on the EPA website.

Materials Recycling Facility

All items placed into a yellow recycling bin are taken to the Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) located at the Glen Innes Waste Facility. The MRF has been contracted to Glen Industries since the 1980's. Glen Industries is an NDIS service provider, employing and training people with a disability in a supportive environment. The Glen Industries team sorts the recycling by hand on a conveyor belt before sending onto the next stage of it's recycling journey. As you place items in your Yellow Lid Bin please think of the safety of the team of employees who have to handle it. PLEASE only put glass bottles, plastic bottles, cardboard, paper, aluminium and tin cans, foil and plastic containers marked with a recycling number in the Yellow Bin. DO NOT place household waste, nappies, needles, dead animals in the Yellow Lid Bin, this contaminates the load and puts the safety of the Glen Industries team at risk.

Glen Innes Waste Facility Trash and Treasure Shed

The buy-back shop will sell items left at the landfill which are of good, reusable quality and include household items, furniture, paintings, motor gear, baby equipment, toys, gardening items and (if you're lucky) including some items that are as new.

Opening Hours for the Trash and Treasure Shed is from 10am to 4pm weekdays and on weekends from 11am to 4pm.
